Oh my goodness!!!!
BEER POLICE - STAT!!
I have a store nearby called Beers of the World - each aisle has different beers from a country. Currently I'm enthralled by beers from Belgium.
Recently discovered a high end corner store that VOILA!! has chosen to stock not only a nice selection of Belgium beers (yay!), but some unusual beers - as well as some gallon jugs from micro-breweries. I'm in heaven.
I like a good thick dark beer, yes Guiness - but there's soooo many more offerings out there.
3 Philosphers (great with chocolate cake btw), even Sam Adams has a Cream Stout out there that is yummy.
One of my old bars I used to bartend at has a superb beer that is brewed for them - it's of a cream ale type - stoutish - and it's the smooooooothest most tastiest stuff.
I also have an English Pub in the area - - and when I go there I sample all that's on tap (have to admit - I do love a HoeGaarden on tap - it's a wheat beer - but the flavor from tap is awesome - the bottled version is just nothing like it. Flavors of almost a liqourice (sp), hint of those old time candy wax bottles filled with "juice" - I love the flavor.
This is just the bottled beer - beer menu is just that - it's a 4 page flip out freaking beer menu - nice that it describes the beers like they are a fine wine!
Get out to some establishments and do some tastetesting!!
Oh, and I also personally enjoy scotch - which requires a whole new thread as there are many to choose from.
